Contract Type
Full Time

A large, well established litigation practice is looking to recruit an experienced fee earner to deal with a caseload of predominantly Defendant RTA based claims involving personal injury, vehicle related damages, loss of earnings and hire/repairs.

Some claims may involve lodging a counterclaim on behalf of the insured and as such some claimant experience is desirable but not essential. Applicants from either Defendant or Claimant background are welcome provided that the candidate has in excess of 2 years' fee earning experience involving claims that have exited the MOJ Portal due to issues of liability, causation or complexity. The value of the defended claims will more often than not be less than £25,000 but there is some scope to deal with claims up to £50,000 if so desired.

Why not be part of a large (15 fee earner) defendant team with the benefit of a state of the art case management system, direct insurer contact and a fast-paced working environment. The role will pay up to around £35,000 plus impressive benefits, holidays and some element of flexibility.

The ideal candidate will be an experienced PI Solicitor, Legal Executive or Paralegal with an interest in joining a large and supportive law firm.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please apply through the advert or contact Nick Tappin at Thornton Legal directly. All applications treated in strictest confidence.

Up to £500 paid in vouchers for successful referrals. Terms and conditions apply, please ask for details.

PQE and salary levels are for guidance only. All applications demonstrating the skills necessary to fulfil the role will be considered.
